TEHRAN, Iran - Iran may not send its girls' football team to the Youth Olympics in Singapore next month because of a dispute over the players' Islamic attire.
The deputy head of Iran's physical education department, Marzieh Akbarabadi, was quoted by Iranian media yesterday as saying the newly designed dress was "inappropriate".
She said the outfit is not what was agreed on and Iran doesn't "need to send its team to Singapore at any cost".
The outfit was supposed to be a compromise with football governing body Fifa, which has banned traditional hijab headscarves.
The outfit consists of a cap similar to what swimmers wear, long-sleeved thick tops, below-knee trousers and long stockings. - Sapa-AP
